Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO) Licence

Landlords currently need an HMO licence if a property has three or more storeys (this includes cellar, basement, shops and loft conversions) and give or more tenants forming more than one household.

It is an offence to fail to license an HMO, and landlords can be prosecuted and fined up to £20,000 for failing to license.

You can apply for a new licence, renew an existing licence or change your licence online:

Public Register

We maintain an Public Register of HMOs that have been licensed.
